Poll: The Overwhelming Majority of Americans Oppose New Covid Restrictions

The New Yorkers pushing back against their tyrannical governor’s newest Covid diktat aren’t the only ones that are sick and tired of the insane Covid-related restrictions foisted on their backs by unaccountable bureaucrats.



According to a recent poll conducted by the Trafalgar Group and the Convention of States, a poll with a sub-3% margin of error, 69.4% of those polled think that there shouldn’t be new or increased mandates and restrictions, even to combat the media-hyped “Omicron” variant.

Only ~30% of those polled are in any way for stronger/new restrictions to deal with Omicron, a massive public opinion win for those that are against the mandates and lockdowns.

And, as Just the News adds, that overwhelming rejection of restrictions exists not just because those polled aren’t worried about Omicron, but also because they are just generally against the restrictive mandates pushed by the likes of Newsom and Hochul, even among Democrats:

that figure reflects 21.4% of those [Democrats] surveyed who believe the variant is “not a serious health risk,” and 33.1% who believe that “regardless of risk, increased mandates and restrictions are not needed.”

When Republicans are asked, the results are even more striking, with over 85% of those polled saying there shouldn’t be any new mandates.

Speaking on the issue of Covid restrictions, the President of Convention of States Action, Mark Meckler, had this to say:

“Unlike government health officials in Washington, DC, Americans have already figured out that mandates and lockdowns are not the way we will beat the COVID-19 pandemic.

As we’ve seen in our polls repeatedly, the American people are tired of all this and ready to get on with their lives. The U.S. Senate finally recognized this reality this week with the bi-partisan passage of the bill to block President Biden’s illegal vaccine mandate, and we’re going to see more of this as we get closer to 2022 and elected officials fight to save their jobs.”

If the poll is anywhere close to correct, Mr. Meckler is right. Americans, Republican and Democrat alike, are sick and tired of all the tyranny and are quite ready to just move on and get on with their lives.
